Here is your updated Rockport fishing report for early February. Things have started to improve a little bit, when the weather allows. But we still have a little ways to go, before we see our excellent Spring fishing. But this Rockport fishing report is certainly better than our last. The weather is still the focal point of this Rockport fishing report. We will sneak in a couple of nicer days here and there. Unfortunately, those have been closely followed by another cold front and overnight temps in the upper 30's. As we write this, we are watching it rain and listening to a stout North breeze at 25+ miles

As we all know, Hurricane Harvey made landfall in Texas on August 25th, 2017. According to latest estimates, it inflicted approximately $125 billion worth of damage, making it the costliest hurricane on record. What’s worse is it changed cities, communities, and lives; including many in Rockport, Texas. Perform a simple “Google” search today, almost five months later, and your feed will fill with words like “devastation”, “destruction”, and “destroyed”. However, the media tends to move on quickly to the next tragedy, and stories of incredible recovery efforts, people getting back on their feet, and communities rebuilding and welcoming tourism back to their towns quickly gets lost in
After a weekend of decent weather, FINALLY... Here is your Rockport fishing report for the week. We are in fact seeing signs of improvement here on the Gulf Coast. The weather is making the move toward "normal", and we have actually been able to get out on the water again to update this Rockport fishing report. Last week hampered us again with crazy cold temps, clouds and plenty of North wind. So much so, that we weren't even able to get out on the water Monday through Friday. That makes for a pretty long week. So we continued to watch the water levels and temps fall all week. Our water
We are approaching the halfway point for the month of January and it's time for another Rockport fishing report. So far, the weather has still been the biggest story all along the Gulf Coast. Winter apparently feels the need to smack us around a bit more than normal this year. So this isn't exactly the rosiest of Rockport fishing reports. But it's not all bad either. We have still been trying to fight through a number of days with record low temperatures here on the Coastal Bend of Texas. We survived a very wet December, and even the first snow we had seen in years. But this brutal cold is
Happy New Year to everyone and welcome to the first Rockport fishing report for the 2018 season. We are hoping that the new year ushers in a bit better weather that we ended last year with. We are in need of some change around here, and hopefully we will see it soon so our Rockport fishing report can improve a bit. December ended on a similar trend from our last report. Way too many cloudy days, windy days and brutal cold. We were able to pick and choose a few days in there, but they were fairly slim. Luckily, we could get out on the water for New Years
Merry Christmas to all, and welcome to our holiday Rockport fishing report. It's been a little bit too long since our last report. So we are going to try to get everyone caught up on what we have been seeing on the water here as of late. The biggest story for your Rockport fishing report as of late, has to be the weather. We've had a pretty crazy December here on the Texas Coast. We are more than 10 inches above our average rainfall for the month of December already. Add in on top of that a little snow as well. Totally crazy around here. And definitely a little more
Finally, we have your Rockport fishing report updated. We know we are a bit behind here. But the weather has been so damn good out there, that we just couldn't find the time off the water to make it happen. But as December has arrived, so has our first Winter storm of the year. So we find ourselves with a couple of down days, and plenty of time to get caught up on things like our Rockport fishing report. Our apologies for making you wait! The past two and half weeks have been absolutely outstanding. We had an impressive run of days with warm temps and light winds along the
Here is your Rockport fishing report for early November... We have had a few days of funky weather around here lately. Nothing too terrible really. But it hasn't been too great for fishing either. But we've been out there doing what we can, with what we are dealt. Some days it pays off, others... not so much. Today was no exception. Dark skies for most of the day, with a threat of rain here and there. Luckily, we managed to dodge that bullet. But spotting fish was tough in the low light. Not much for tailing fish as well. So it was a bit tricky today. We did manage a
Here is the final Rockport fishing report for the month of October. Fall weather is officially upon us in Rockport and the Coastal Bend of Texas. So for our final Rockport fishing report of the month, we will update everyone on the changes in the weather, tides and how the fish are behaving because of it. The biggest news since our last Rockport fishing report would have to be the tides and water levels. We have had extremely high tides post Harvey. This past week, that finally changed. We had our first real cold front of the Fall blow through last weekend. This brought us extremely high winds from the
A little later than planned, but finally your Rockport fishing report for mid October. It's starting to feel a little bit like Fall around here now... sort of. We are coming off of our first little weather from the North, which was nice. It brought with it some cooler air and a lot less humidity. All welcome changes. This wind from the North also helped blow a little bit of the water out of the bays. It is still very high every where, but a tiny bit better, compared to the last Rockport fishing report. This has also helped some of the water clear a little better too. So things
